NAPO NNJ Executive Board

President

Deirdre Smith, Happy Place Organizing

(201) 674-1474  |  deirdre@happyplaceorganizing.com

 I am excited to be given the privilege to serve as President of NAPO-NNJ. This term will mark my 5th term on the board. Previously, I served for 2 years as Secretary (2015-2017), then 2 years as Vice President (2017-2019). I joined NAPO as soon as I formed my business, Happy Place Organizing, in 2012 and it was one of the best decisions I made, both professionally and personally. As President of NNJ, I aim to make your experiences with the chapter as beneficial and positive as possible. I hope you will become involved, whether for a volunteering day, as a committee member or maybe step into a board position (it’s really quite fun being on the board!). Looking forward to a great year ahead!

(845) 200-3500  |  eileen@legacyestateorganizing.com 

I am happy to continue serving the NAPO-NNJ Board, now as its Vice President, following two years as Secretary. !  I joined the chapter in 2016 after opening my business, Legacy Estate Organizing, LLC.  I serve as a financial partner to executors administering their loved one’s estate — locating assets and learning more about the deceased loved one in the process.  The attention to detail required by my business lends itself to the position of Secretary, and I sincerely hope that my particular niche of organizing adds to NAPO’s wider circle of outstanding organizing and productivity professionals.

I am an “old-timer”. I have been in business since 2003, initially as Creative Organizing, LLC, however in 2016 I rebranded my business to Thomson Blueprints for Living, LLC to reflect all the changes it has gone through over the years. I have served prior as the Director of Professional Development & Programs for 2 terms (2008-2010) and as the Director-at-Large for 2 terms (2011-2013). As Director-at-Large, I lead an ad hoc committee which took the board’s job descriptions under review and rewrote them in the format they are today. I missed the close comradeship with my colleagues, so I am back on the board as the Director of Administration, a role that returns me to the tasks of maintaining the chapters operations documents and history. Someone has to do it!
